We've Moved! To A BETTER home!

This is an awesome upgrade for followers of this blog! In conjunction with Bobby Gorman at The Punk Site, we're basically relaunching this blog with a new home. How will this change things you ask? Well, for starters, both Bobby and I will be contributing now, so that means even more sources adding to the wealth of great free music out there. And rest assured, while I will be slowly migrating all of this blog's content over to The Punk Site's free music blog, we'll be posting new stuff as it become available as well.

So don't forget to change your bookmarks to the new address! Here's Bobby's intro spiel, taken from the welcoming post:

"In the blog, we will be posting links to free and most importantly, legal downloads. However, we won't be promoting just the random single downloads or the likes (we'll still do that in the news area though, don't worry), this blog will be dedicated to full album downloads. We already have a large list of links to get up there, so keep checking back and get ready to be introduced to countless new bands for the low, low price of nothing."

And now follow it on Twitter!

Portugal. The Man - Tour Sampler

Portugal. The Man have been a favourite of mine since their Fearless Records years. They never stop touring, and yet still manage to release a new album annually. Their unique indie style is all their own, and their dedication to their fans unmatched. This meaty tour sampler includes Portugal as well as a couple of their touring mates, and is certainly worth checking out.

Big Plans Ahead...

This blog will be given new life sometime in the future. I'll still post here in the mean time, but expect big things sometime down the line... Yes, this was a teaser post.

Hostage Life - The Centre of the Universe

Ontario's Hostage Life released their full length debut on September 30, 2009. They then proceeded to play their last show on November 20th, 2009. What a shame. This album is chalk full of sloppy anthems and fantastic hooks. These guys will be missed for what could have been.

Robin Grey - Strangers With Shoes

When it comes to articulately narrated folk, Robin Grey is without a doubt one of the finest front runner in the Creative Commons revolution. His pseudo-spoken word style approach feels entirely unique, authentic, and his own. With his latest album, Strangers With Shoes, adds draws on an array of other musicians as well, including talented accordionist/violinist Barabra Bartz. This is Robin's finest hour yet, and that is an hour that certainly should not be missed.

Lame Drivers - Two Albums

When a band has "it," they just have "it." It isn't easy to define, but when everything comes together, "it" is a pleasing result. I say this very vaguely because today's post is about New York punk/pop/rock group Lame Drivers. They have a very loose, very sloppy style, but it all comes across very tightly and just sounds right. Anyway, they have both of their album's up for download via donation based LCMR Records, so give'm a shot.

The Decay - This Month's Rent

About This Blog (Click)

The Decay are a good old fashioned punk group from Ontario. Nothing more, nothing less. Their melodies are catchy, and delivery rough around the edges. I can only imagine good things coming from these guys. Check 'em out.
